We have a very strong reputation in Personal Injury litigation particularly in acting for plaintiffs (i.e. persons who have been injured and wish to make a claim).
The area of personal injury litigation can be complex and have life altering consequences for clients. We appreciate fully that when a client has to meet with us that this can be a very difficult time. We strive to simplify and ease the process whilst at the same time providing the best results and support to the client. Depending on the circumstances of each individual case, and to ensure that the optimum service to clients is provided, we also discharge any expenses necessary to ascertain the extent and the nature of their case such as the cost of medical reports and MRI scans.
A claim for personal injury compensation can only be made if it can be shown that firstly there has been negligence on the part of someone who owes you a duty of care e.g. a motorist has a duty of care towards other motorists and pedestrians and an employer has a duty of care to its employees. Secondly, you can only claim if you suffer injury or loss – you cannot sue for “near misses”. Claims for compensation can arise in a various ways, the most common which are as follows:
- Through use of defective products or services
- Road traffic accidents
- Accidents in the workplace or public areas
- Slip and fall accidents
- Medical or professional negligence
We have extensive experience in all these areas.
